Questions and Answers

More Info

Windows 10
Microsoft Windows 10 combines the best elements of the Windows you already know, like the Start menu, with new features like space to pin your favorite apps and easy navigation so you'll feel right at home. Getting set up is faster and easier so you can get right to work or exploring the Windows App Store games or a new version of Office.

TrueHArmony's unique construction is carefully designed for enhanced strength and flexibility with an optimized equalizer so you enjoy it's full range of sound with less distortion and fine frequency balance.

Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0
Just as Intel has released its next generation Core i-series processors, it also has improved its Turbo Boost technology with version 2.0. Automatically activated to increase processor performance to its highest state, Turbo Boost 2.0 enables the processor frequency to dynamically increase, based on demand, until maximum frequency is reached depending on the number of active cores. In addition, Turbo Boost 2.0 uses several algorithms working together to power, current, and temperature to ensure energy efficiency. For short periods of time, Turbo Boost 2.0 can even enable the processor to run at a higher power level than its rated upper power limit.

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
Intel's hyper-threading technology means you'll get peak performance for your multithreaded applications thanks to higher processing throughput. To put it simply, each core of the processor is capable of working on multiple tasks at the same time.

Intel Virtualization Technology
Consolidates multiple environments into a single server or PC. It provides greater user flexibility that can help reduce costs, improve security, and increase resiliency regarding contingency planning.

Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O
This VT-d technology takes VT-x capability a step further by providing support for I/O device virtualization helping to improve device performance. IT managers can benefit from improved system security and reliability, reduced downtime, and better use of data center resources.

Extended Page Tables
Boosting memory for demanding virtualizaiton applications, this hardware optimization, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), helps reduce power consumption and its associated costs while also aiding battery life.

Intel 64
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you're ready. Intel's 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.

Intel Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.

Thermal Monitoring Technologies
This feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor's power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.

The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary - even under worst case power use.

Intel Small Business Advantage
Protect your business with Intel Small Business Advantage featuring enhanced security and software monitoring capable of alerting you to a system attack and creating an event log. A health center for after-hours data back up and maintenance tasks like OS updates and disk defragging can be performed when least disruptive.

Intel Smart Response Technology
The perfect resource combination providing cost-effective, high-performance data storage solution. By enabling a small capacity solid state drive to be used in conjunction with a high-capacity hard drive, Intel Smart Response Technology offers faster system startup and application access, and great gaming performance.

Intel My WiFi
Intel My WiFi is an easy way to wirelessly share content. The My WiFi user interface serves as a means of connecting your computer directly with up to eight WiFi devices anywhere and lets you stay connected to the Internet at the same time. It's never been easier to sync your devices, send or receive content, or print all via a wireless connection.

Intel AES-NI
Advance Encryption Standard New Instructions AES-NI, is an encryption standard used by the U.S. government since 2001 and now is commonly used in software to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructure. Intel processors use AES in addition to a set of six new instructions to enable hardware to do some of the work of AES, thereby accelerating its execution by three to 10 times compared with relying solely on software.

Intel Secure Key
Intel Secure Key is a feature designed to keep your data and personal information safe by strengthening encryption capability via a digital random number generator.

Intel Software Guard Extensions
This set of CPU instructions provides applications the ability to create a secure area in which to protect data from access by other rogue software.

Execute Disable Bit
Reduces your system's exposure to viruses and mal-ware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue.

10/100/1000 Gigabit Network
Just when you thought life couldn't go any faster, technology changed the rules. Using more bandwidth and full-duplex capacity, the 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet will have you connecting with the Internet or your other devices faster than you can say gigabit.

Bluetooth® 4.0
